ND State Senator Faces 2nd Alcohol Related Arrest

Posted: Updated:

A North Dakota state senator from Park River says he's contemplating his political future after a second alcohol-related arrest. 

Joe Miller, 31, is charged with speeding, having an open container of alcohol and being in actual physical control of a motor vehicle while over the legal blood-alcohol limit. 

Miller also was charged with having an open container in 2007.

He was given a suspended 20-day jail sentence and fined $500.

He says it was "foolish" to get behind the wheel after drinking at a banquet late last month and that he'll have to live with the consequences. He's due in court July 22. 

Miller has been in the Senate since 2009.
